Buffalo Bill Birthday Celebration

Noon - 4 p.m. on Sunday, February 23, 2014


Celebrate the birthday of one of America’s greatest legends, William “Buffalo Bill” Cody.  In the grand tradition of parties, the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave will host the annual Buffalo Bill Birthday Bash on Sunday, February 23 from noon to 4 p.m. Sing Happy Birthday, eat cake, play games and maybe even learn a thing or two on this very festive FREE day.

Join the Museum staff at Noon for a ceremonial cutting of the cake by a photogenic collection of Buffalo Bill look-alikes.  Then wander through the Museum exhibits, visiting with costumed volunteers as they discuss the Native Americans, buffalo and cowboys that were such a vital part of Buffalo Bill’s life.  At 1:30 p.m. the action moves back outside for the annual Buffalo-Chip Tossing Contest.  Prizes will be awarded in both an adult and child’s category.

Enjoy a special performance by Susie Knight, named 2014 Female Cowboy Poet of the year by the Academy of Western Artists.  Her song, "The Spirit of Buffalo Bill," is a 2014 AWA Song of the Year nominee.
